, please stand by. we're going live to president obama who is making a statement. >> it's a beginning. i'm sure there will be difficult days ahead and many questions remain unanswered. but i am confident that the people of egypt can find the answers and do so peacefully, constructively, and in the spirit of unity that has defined these last few weeks. for gyptians have made it clear that nothing less than genuine democracy will carry the day. the military has served patriotically and responsibly as a caretaker to the state and will have to ensure a transition that is credible in the eyes of the egyptian people, which means protecting the rights of the egyptian citizens, lifting the emergency law, reviving the constitution and other laws to make this change irreversible and laying out a clear path to elections that are fair and free. above all, this transition must bring all of egypt's voices to the table. for the spirit of peaceful protests and perseverance that the egyptian people have shown can serve as a powerful wind at the back of this change. the united states will continue to be a

with officials from the obama administration. he spoke to us earlier from there. i asked him what germany and europe could do to support these democratic movements in the tunisian, egypt, and elsewhere. >> i think it is now necessary that we strengthen, and we have decreed institutions which allow the people of tunisia and egypt to decide about their own fate, about their own future in a democratic way. this means that time is needed for organizing new political parties and in the wider spectrum of secular opposition and a secular political parties can help to establish these parties through our political foundations. in germany, all the political parties have political foundations. so we can cover the whole political spectrum from the left to the right and vice versa. we could also help in an economic way, because there are big economic problems in tunisia and egypt as well. if we open the european markets more broadly and agricultural products from tunisia and egypt, this might be part of the discussion to the i am favoring this step. a third step would be that they should open our univ

. i mean, that was just, like, throwaway money for the republicans so they'll support obama. and all it does it add to the budget deficit. i mean, the rich hardly need tax cuts in the united states, but they're going to get them. - is there any way an american politician could get elected today saying, "well, it's time to pay some taxes, here, to put our house in order"? is that doable? and if it's not doable, what will happen? - it's absolutely not doable, and that's why i've said i think the americans need a fiscal pearl harbour to really get their act together. it was winston churchill that said, "you can count on the americans to ultimately do the right thing, but only after they've exhausted all the other possibilities".
